It’s always a busy year for the punk quartet Like A Motorcycle, who in the past 12 months saw founding member Jillian Comeau depart and guitarist Dave Casey (Hot Dave) installed, among other highlights, including four overseas tours, a deal with GroundSwell, an ECMA for Rising Star of the Year that was auctioned off in a fundraiser for Phoenix House and most recently three nods at Nova Scotia Music Week for High Hopes. Production starts on LP two in the new year. “Thank you to everyone who voted for us,” they say. “Incidentally, at our next show we'll be offering coupons for 25 percent off your next hearing exam.”
